Tasty Med' red that's well-balanced, food-loving, and both easy drinking and serious.
Delicious Cotes du Rhone from Laurent Dublanc, its well-made, balanced, and easy drinking. The 2019 is the kind of wine that we think will fly off the shelves, so grab a case before we run out. Made from a typical southern Rhone blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre, it’s a deep ruby red with notes of redcurrant, ripe plum, vanilla, and black pepper. The appellation rules here allow for up to nineteen different grapes to be used, but the big three used in the 2019 from Dublanc are the most common amongst producers. We suggest serving this one at room temperature with a platter of well-seasoned, grilled red meats. Drink now.
4.5 Stars, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer (2018 vintage) "My favourite reds often come from the sunny Southern Rhone Valley in France, bordering the Languedoc and equally as sensational when it comes to having a dry, warm to hot Mediterranean climate. The climate there is ideal for maximising the deliciousness of late ripening grapes such as Grenache and Syrah, which typically form the heart and soul of reds labelled Cotes-du-Rhone, such as this smooth, dark and deliciously spicy red. Top buying in taste and in value. This wine offers loads of both."
17/20, Wine Central Tasting Panel
Its grown in the Southern Cotes du Rhone between Montelimar and Avignon where the soils are a combination of chalky clay and pebbles.
The grapes are harvested at perfect ripeness, de-stemmed, crushed and fermented for 6-12 days at a controlled temperature around 30 degrees C.
Perfect with grilled meats and most mediterranean dishes.
